scale syllabus

When I was in high school, I didn't appreciate the resources available nearly enough. One such resource was the scale section in our jazz band method book. I can't imagine how much time it took our band director to put it together—it's handwritten for all four common transpositions in jazz band—and contains several patterns in all keys as well as the typical jazz scales.  While it probably isn't necessary to write out every the scale for every key of a given mode, I think it is helpful for some students to see everything written out. I decided to recreate (or at least imitate) it in Sibelius for my students last year, and I'll share it here in case it is useful to anyone else. If you use it, let me know how you like it (or not).
